UK Dirty Meat Scandal
"I've seized many carcasses contaminated
by faeces, brain and spinal matter, as well as a variety of
potentially- fatal bacteria. Some have also been covered in
cysts and riddled with disease...
...After a long battle against these criminals
I feel that nothing happens to them; they are still in business
poisoning the nation every day and no one is taking any action...I
will do what I can to protect the public despite difficulties
which I am facing." Dr Yunes Teinaz..
Meat" Despatches programme, shown on Channel 4, showed
only the tip of the iceberg.
In spite of reassuring words from the government
and the FSA, - no action is actually taken to stop the rotten
trade except by the heroic few such as Dr Teinaz. Although
professional and trade associations have called for new legislation
to deal with serious food crime, the Food Standards Agency
has resisted, arguing that to introduce a new offence would
"breach European Community law."
Thanks to Dr Yunes Teinaz and other researchers
who have shared their knowledge with warmwell, we can at least
put some information onto the internet for all to see. This
sort of task should not be up to us - but where are those
who should be giving substantial help to Dr Teinaz with new
legislation aimed at the real criminals? The Meat Trade in
its criminal form is sinister, powerful and deeply feared
- and widespread. Who will protect consumers from diseased
meat and the animals from barbarous slaughter?
